Irish Happy Birthday Card

Couldn't resist making a non-traditional birthday card for a friend. Her birthday is the day before St. Patrick's Day.  I love a matching envelope but I used too thick of a black ink to make the shamrock "balloons". Next time I would use a thinner point pen.  
On this card I was trying a technique that Jennifer McGuire used called "Layered Stenciling".  Here is the link to that post

When I inked over the shamrock stencil, I felt the white behind it was too stark of a contrast and decided to go with the dots to break it up.  Also, I added dimension by popping up (on foam) the flag that is embossed with the sentiment "It's your day!"   It is hard to see that it is raised off the card.

Here is just the card.

Products are listed below:

The girl with the drink and the shamrocks on the envelope is from the My Creative Time set called "You're My Lucky Charm"

The black "Cheers" is from the Reverse Confetti set called "Clink"

The embossed "It's Your Day!" sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp stamp set called "Happy and Smile"

The stencils are too old to find a link to the products😊

Thanks for stopping by & all my best💕
